About The Authors
Tanja Jensen MSc, currently lives in Denmark and is inspired by the Danish way of parenting. She is the mother of two children who both experience sensory sensitivity and she has walked the path of raising them in a world that has often been overwhelming for them. She has delved deep into the latest research in occupational therapy, child brain development, highly sensitive children and education philosophies. As the founder of a non-profit organisation, Grey Zone Kids, she has found her calling to promoting awareness and understanding of these more sensitive kids and developing optimal environments for them at home and at school. Today, she works in a school and advocates for understanding of children’s sensory needs and neurodiversity. Through her foundation, Grey Zone Kids, Tanja works with change-makers to promote a new pedagogy and education philosophy that encompasses these new understandings.
